Peace and Joy to You and Yours

This is the first year that we didn't exclusively celebrate Christmas.  While Mr. P isn't technically Jewish (his mother isn't Jewish), we certainly have a very Jewish surname (one of the twelve tribes then add a 'stein for good measure).  I love tradition, history and family and it just seemed wrong to me not to acknowledge these ties during the holidays.  Now that we've been married for a few years and have started some of our own traditions, I wanted to find an appropriate way to weave the Jewish heritage into our celebration of the holiday season. So this year, I bought a lovely menorah and we have lit the Hanukkah candles each night.

I buy holiday cards on deep discount the week after Christmas, so this year, I sent out a hodge podge of different cards along with this picture that we took while on the San Francisco movie tour:

We wish our friends, family, and blog friends joy and peace carrying them through the New Year! 

And next year, I'm calling the whole thing off and utilizing Paperless Post! :)
